Melbourne's biggest bathhouse and day spa with bathing, sauna, massage, and  mindfulness studio — Sense Of Self

Located on the border of Collingwood and Fitzroy, Sense Of Self Bathhouse occupies a double storey converted brick warehouse. The facilities include a large mineral bath (39℃), Finnish sauna (80℃), pail shower, cold plunge (10℃-12℃), a day spa, retail, and plenty of space to take your time.

The centre offers three types of massages, available as either a 60 or 90 minute treatment. Also, the body acceptance program by Sense Of Self aims to transform your relationship with your body.

The centre is founded by filmmaker-come bathing enthusiast and a botanist come hotelier, Mary Minas and Freya Berwick.  

As a Greek Cypriot, the importance of bringing people together was ingrained in Mary’s DNA. After taking a ‘bathhouse odyssey’ through Europe, North Africa and Japan she saw the benefits of traditional bathing for social connection and everyday wellness. 

Growing up in the Daintree, Freya has always believed in the power of connection with place and the self. In a career spanning hospitality design, botanical science and research, she fell hard for Scandinavian design and sauna culture during a three-year stint in Norway.

Mary and Freya teamed up to create an Australian space that would draw on global practices to meet modern needs, in an inclusive way. The result is Sense of Self; a contemporary bathhouse and spa with beautiful design, a big mission, and world-class customer service at its core.
